Passing

I'll be away from blogger for a few weeks...my Mom passed away this morning and I am headed up to Boston for the services and to be with my brothers and sisters.  Even though she was in her 90's and had a stroke in January it was still tough to get the phone call.  She is already missed.

Peace and comfort to you and all your siblings at this time, Siobhan. It's not easy nor matter how prepared we think we are for the inevitability of it all. And usually the source of so much family history passes with them because none of us can possibly write down everything the next generation may want to know before we pass.

As they are special people, take care.
